To further enjoy your experience of our Botham wine range, we’ve written vintage release tasting notes for you. These can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.
Our tasting notes do offer guidance on how long you can cellar our wines for but please remember that no one bottle develops or matures exactly the same as another and as a wine ages, its taste and characteristics will change. The enjoyment timeframe of a wine is ultimately a personal one and if you would like to ask us a question about how best to cellar your wine at home, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
